  • Welp, at least I hadn’t left for work yet this time. Stay safe, y’all.

  • mericans and their guns

      • Accountering

        Some yahoo called into DC101 today and before anyone even knew what was happening was saying things like “These things happen in America, lets not politicize it etc”
        These things happen because we as a country have decided that we need more than one gun for every man, woman, and child in the country.

        • It doesn’t appear to be the number of guns involved. Doesn’t Sweden and Canada have more guns (percentage wise) than the US? We are just a nation of know-it-all idiots with no interest in self control or basic standards of decency.

          • I seriously doubt it is Sweden. You’re probably thinking of Switzerland.

          • I just looked it up. No, the USA is #1 per capita. Switzerland is #3, Canada is #13, and Sweden is #10. And just in case you’re wondering what #2 is, it’s Yemen.
